Default fuel sender questions for EFIS

My 8 has vans capacitive plates installed. I need some type sender (signal converter) to connect them to my iefis. The mgl efis needs 0-5 v input. I don't know what kind or where to get what I need. Anyone know how to contact Princeton to ask them if they can provide what I need. Also maybe dynon? Any info would appreciated.

Thanks
Bird

I have the Princeton converters. I bought them from Advanced Flight Systems. You have to call. They are not listed in the on-line catalog. Pricey, but easy to use. Mine have been going 5 years, no problems.

Dynon: http://www.dynonavionics.com/downloads/order_form.pdf page 17.

Thanks everyone!! Do I need to go through advanced flight systems to get this?
I can't seem to find a contact number for Princeton. If anyone knows how to contact them let me know.

Thanks and happy flying
Bird

Default I bought Dynon

units for my plate system in the RV-8A and they work great with my Odyssey MGL EFIS. Very accurate, even when the tanks get really low. I would recommend them. Best regards, Bill RV-8a Bluebird 104 hrs

Hi Tim

I checked the sender output value (shown on fuel set up page when you calibrate) in tail down/up for first fuel figure and as they were the same I did the rest of the calibration tail down. Nothing to suggest so far it made any difference (85 hrs). Calibrated my home made dip tube at same time and the two are very close pre-flight.
